From the official website : "Elephants Dream is the story of two strange characters exploring a capricious and seemingly infinite machine. The elder, Proog, acts as a tour-guide and protector, happily showing off the sights and dangers of the machine to his initially curious but increasingly skeptical protege Emo. As their journey unfolds we discover signs that the machine is not all Proog thinks it is, and his guiding takes on a more desperate aspect. Elephants Dream is the world’s...

Bosko is an animated cartoon character created by Hugh Harman and Rudy Ising in 1927 and the first recurring character in the Leon Schlesinger cartoon series Looney Tunes. "Although Harman and Ising based Bosko's looks on Felix the Cat, Bosko, like Mickey, got his personality from the blackface characters of the minstrel and vaudeville shows popular in the 1930s. Whereas Disney masked Mickey by making him a mouse, Harman and Ising made Bosko a genuine black boy. Keeping with the...

These are all the Casper The Friendly Ghost Cartoons that I had in one of my encrypted boxes. Enjoy them because some of them are very rare and very rarely seen on television. More to come. Stay tuned I have piles of them that I had recovered. This makes about 100 Gb of films uploaded by hgoodall. This is just a small portion of films in my possession.

One of the first cartoons made dedicated for the early TV market. In the 1960's animation was an expensive precess costing up to $2,500 a minute to produce. Space Angel cartoons were mostly storyboads where the only movement was the mouths of the characters(Syncro-Vox system). This animation style was similar to Clutch Cargo Cartoons! Space Angel was the code name of Scott McCloud, an agent for the Earth Bureau of Investigation. Devoted to the security and welfare of the solar system, McCloud...

Is a microscopic giant robot still a giant robot? And do our bodies really contain microscopic planets, suns, galaxies, and so on? According to this movie, the answer is YES. Another masterwork mash-up of various Korean animations by Hong Kong schlockmeister Joseph Lai, watching this movie will redefine "pain" in your mind.
